Color me intrigued...
This was my first time reading Lori Whitwam and I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Seth and Abby first meet under less than ideal circumstances, but it doesn't take long for the acrimonious feelings to give way to something more...friendly. Abby is the type of person who doesn't like to venture out of her comfort zone, and is notoriously famous for the lack of filter, and her inadvertent way of blurting out her thoughts without realizing she's spoken aloud.Seth's been pretty much going through the motions for the last year or so, since the implosion of his previous relationship, but when he meets Abby, something about her calls to him on a cellular level and he finds himself drawn to her in a way he can't explain, and doesn't want to. All he knows is that he feels free when he's with her.So you might be thinking "aww, how sweet!" And it is. Until it's not, and the trouble seemingly starts the morning after Seth stays at Abby's house. That's when the story begins to blend in the incidents alongside the blossoming romance. And for the most part, you might think you know who's behind the incidents, because that person seems like the most obvious choice. So when all was revealed, I was surprised because that's not who I was anticipating, and the reason for everything happening was definitely misdirected towards Seth; it wasn't his fault, but the perpetrator didn't agree with my assessment lol. The best part was who was responsible for helping to stop the suspect, I got a kick out that individual's role.Seth and Abby do get their HEA, and I'm extremely curious about Marshall's story and can't wait to read it and find out exactly WHY his head is now bald!
This book is about a mystery writer who finds herself living in a mystery when she meets rock star Seth, the lead singer of Dead End Road. The mystery part really surprised me in the end. I simply love that in the book. What’s the point in writing a mystery when the readers figure out the game before the big reveal? Not the case with this book!The romance part of the story was really quick. After just a few days of meeting, this conversation starts:“I love you, Abby, and I need for you to know it, to believe it”“How can you believe it? How could it happen so fast […]”“I feel like I’ve always known you. I just hadn’t met you yet.”I love that last line! It’s so perfect. Best line I have read in a long time. Plus, it perfectly explains the fast connection and fast-paced romance.All the characters are really dynamic, and I’m sure we will see them all again soon. At least, I hope so. It’s easy and so much fun to get caught up in rock star stories. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, they are some of my favorite stories.I loved how Abby and Seth met. It was cute … after they got over. Definitely a story to tell the grandchildren one day. And Abby’s small-town gossip mongering was perfectly cliché—everyone knowing what’s going on the minute it happens. It made all the characters so endearing.My only complaint is the formatting. I have an ARC, so I’m hoping that isn’t an issue in the published copy. It made certain parts difficult to follow because dialogues ran into each other or were a part of the same paragraph as someone else’s dialogue.Despite that, the story was easy to follow, was a real surprise mystery, and again, I fell in love with all the characters, even the fanatic, slightly psycho Seth fans.
Great Story!! Loved the intensity. Crazy whirlwind insta-love. Abby and Seth warmed my heart. they were so sweet together and the chemistry between them was electric. There was a great mystery element through the story as the gang try to figure out who is trying to take out the lead singer of Dead End Road. The inspired parallel is that the heroine is a mystery novelist, and she knows a thing or two about how to kill off people.Throw in a few crazy fan stalkers and this makes for a really intriguing, fun, steamy mystery. I would definitely recommend an read of Dead End Road.ARC provided for honest review by Enticing Journey Promotions
Great story.This is a rockstar romance, a mystery, and a perfect book. I love the characters and the fact that Abby is an author. Seth is a mature rocker, has been around long enough to have two married band members and some common sense. They meet under unusual circumstances and the rest is a totally page turning good HEA. Need more of this group, Marshall is the last single member and his story needs to be told.
This story had me giggling one moment and at the edge of my seat the next. It isn't often that you meet the rock star of your dreams only to have him want to strangle you - that was the funny part. Seth the rock star in this book is having to hole up in Emporia, MN after an attempt on his life - Good thing Abigail, the woman he wants to strangle is also a native of the area and the girl of his dreams. With engaging characters, a one-eyed black lab and mystery of who is trying to kill Seth this not-so-typical rock star romance is a great way to pass the time on a hot summer's day.
Dead End Road is an intriguing story that is filled with suspense and a beautiful love story. You really have to pay attention in this book so that you don't miss anything and I enjoy that you did not know what was going to happen until it was revealed. Abby is a mystery writer that is secluded in life...she has no filter and say what she means. I loved that part about her she is who she is. Seth is a rockstar with a great heart, he didn't come off arrogant and it was refreshing. They have an instant attraction but it wasn't over the top it felt real and honest. Their love story is fast moving but fill with twist and turns in the plot that keeps the story moving. Great Love Story!
